Workforce planning is essential to the provision of an efficient, high quality pathology service. Both through monitoring AACs and through direct surveys, the Workforce Department:
- collects workforce data for use by the Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI) and other relevant professional groups
- advises the College on trends in recruitment in pathology specialties.
Online Workforce Database - please check your details
This multi-professional database is now available HERE.
How to use the online workforce database
It provides up-to-the-minute data on the UK pathology workforce, including details of demographics, posts and vacancies and will play a pivotal role in long-term workforce planning.
College members must update their own records using their existing College website username and password. (If you need a username and password, please apply for them HERE.)
A helpdesk run by the database’s designers is open 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday on 0870 840 8033. For more details please see the FAQs for Workforce Database below.
